Drive constraints / Animation

Hello, has anyone in the forum got any experience with driving constraints/animating. I want to animate a flighted conveyor continually running, then, place an item on the conveyor and show the item being conveyed down the line. its important to show the flights continually moving around though.
Many thanks in advance.

RE: Drive constraints / Animation

What book do you have to learn Dynamic Simulation?

RE: Drive constraints / Animation

Hi rollupswx, I don't have a book on dynamic simulation, last tutorial I read was by Travis Jones / Daniel T Banach Autodesk Inventor Essentials 2010.
Do you know of one in particular?
